Maillards bespoke coffin makers are, like ourselves, a family run business so we are able to offer a range of coffins according to your preference.
A popular choice of coffin is our veneered oak range which is suitable for burial or cremation. For burials we are also able to offer solid and hinged lid coffins.
All our wooden coffins are fitted with gold or silver effect handles and engraved name plaques. The interior is lined with silk.
Made totally from natural and sustainable materials, our wicker coffins when beautifully dressed and woven with flowers, really do give a feeling of being close to nature.
Making up a custom coffin with the family’s chosen handles and plaque requires a significant amount of effort and attention to detail.
First, our funeral director will consult with the family to determine their preferences for the type of coffin they would like and the specific details they want to be included. This may involve selecting a particular style of coffin, such as a traditional casket or a more unique design, as well as choosing the colour and finish of the coffin.
Once the basic design is established, our funeral director will work with the family to select the handles and plaque that will be attached to the coffin. These may be chosen from a selection provided by the funeral home, or they may be custom-made to the family’s specifications.
The handles and plaque must then be carefully affixed to the coffin. This requires precision and attention to detail to ensure that they are securely attached and aligned properly.
Throughout the process, the funeral director must also ensure that the coffin meets all legal and regulatory requirements. This may involve verifying that the dimensions and materials of the coffin are in compliance with local regulations and ensuring that any necessary permits are obtained.
Overall, making up a custom coffin with the family’s chosen handles and plaque is a time-consuming process that requires a high degree of skill and attention to detail. The goal is to create a final product that honours the wishes of the family and provides a fitting tribute to their loved one.
